Shinshinim & Shlichim

An element of the Jewish Federation's mission is to strengthen connections with Israel and World Jewry. Shinshinim (post-high school) and shlichim (young adults) are Israeli emissaries who infuse Israel into local Jewish life. 

Meet Our 2016-2017 Shinshinim:
Noga Cherzman, Noa Dveyrin,
Amit Komidi, and Yikrat Yogev!

The goal of the Shinshinim program is to strengthen Jewish family ties and build the foundation for a secure Jewish future. The 2016-2017 Shinshinim program is a partnership between the Jewish Agency for Israel, the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle, and local partners: Camp Solomon Schechter, Congregation Beth Shalom, Minyan Ohr Chadash, Seattle Hebrew Academy, Temple B'nai Torah, Temple De Hirsch Sinai, and URJ Camp Kalsman.
